The Dark Souls community is littered with "PvP Guides". Yet simply reading, without deliberate practice, will get you nowhere fast.
The 10,000 hour rule states: to be an expert in your field requires a devotion to one’s craft for at least 10,000 hours of deliberate practice.
1. An association of people for mutual aid or a common goal
First things first, we are a guild not a covenant. As a guild, our services simply compliment those of your covenant. Our mission is to serve as a training ground for those worthy enough to serve under Velka, The Goddess of Sin. (Non-Messengers are welcome..continue reading)
I do hereby swear, by the power of Velka, Goddess of Sin, to continue in the pursuit of refined combat skills. And to respect the rites and traditions of The Messengers of Velka. Should these ancient ties be broken, may Velka have mercy upon my soul
Welcome to The Guild fellow traveler! Come to seek further training in the art of Combat, right? If not, then be gone with you! You'll spoil our focus.
In The Guild we have one goal: to better prepare ourselves for battle. We search for and practice combat techniques both new and old. Jolly Co-operation, as some would say. However, it's not that simple. Guildsmen join for life: once a Guildsman, always a Guildsman. Leave now if you are unwilling to take the oath.
Non-Messengers: Non-Messengers are welcome to join, but cannot take the oath and must pay an in-game fee of 10 Humanity per month. All fees will benefit The Messengers of Velka, The Guild's sponsor.
Each Monday and Tuesday, Guildsmen may recommend a PvP mechanic to learn. On Wednesday, The Messengers will decide, based on the recommendations, what the subject will be. The subject will be announced on the first page of this thread with links or videos demonstrating the use and execution of said subject. The terms by which the practice will take place will also be posted.
1. Deceit used in order to achieve one's goals
Each Sunday, from 1:00AM - 4:00AM GMT (GMT Monday) , The Guild will meet to learn and practice the decided upon PvP mechanic(s). Each Guildsman is awarded one point for participation. (side note: there is also a possibility that we could have a second meeting, also on sunday, for people in difficult timezones. just let me know, and I'd be glad to work something out)

Disclaimer: I want to make this as easy to participate in as possible. If you are interested in joining, then just post and offer your suggestions for subjects. I realize that several PvP guides already exist. This is not a guide. This is an effort to improve our skills as a community. I feel that with the flickering glitch back, the community is coming on hard, inactive times. This is a way for anyone who is tired of the flickering to freshen up their PvP experience.
